COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brooklyn East India Pale Ale, originally a summer seasonal, has been getting raves since becoming a year round offering in 1996. Garrett Oliver, a student of English brewing and beer history, uses English malts and hops to brew his EIPA in the classic, heavily-hopped style of the 19th century beers created for British soldiers serving in India.

marv3mania (176) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 27, 2013
12 oz. bottle poured into tulip glass. Opaque brownish-orange color. Medium white head which dissipates quickly with no lacing. Very citrus-y, floral scent. Similar taste, though not as strong as the aroma, hoppy with a touch of malt. Smooth, crisp feel with good amount of carbonation. Overall, a good beer, though far from the best IPA I’ve tried.

Deep golden with white head. Big malt caramel aroma, very nice with some floral hop aroma. Dry with light bitterness and intense malty flavour.

Bottle. Not a typical IPA, rather hints of chocolate/toffee in the aroma than citrus &c. Average carbonation, small finish.

tomekk1978 (408) - POLAND - JUL 7, 2014
Barwa: złocista, klarowna. Piana biała, drobno pęcherzykowa, niewielka i szybko opadająca, ale ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Aromat: słodowy (herbatnikowo- karmelowy) oraz chmielowy (zioła, owoce - w tym wyraźne cytrusy - kwiaty). Trochę perfumowany, ale początkowo dość intensywny i przyjemny. Z czasem niestety wzrasta przygaszona początkowo nuta alkoholowa. Smak: słodowy, dość pełny, ale raczej wytrawny. Następnie chmielowa kontra z cytrusami i śliwkami na czele. Wyczuwalna goryczka w okolicach średniej. Przyjemna, nie zalegająca. Nieco alkoholowy finisz.

jesperhammer (2815) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2014
02-JUL-2014, bottle @CPH Airport. Clear golden with a lively, quickly dying, off-white head. Classic IPA with citrus - grape fruit - and pine. Sweet, bitter. Medium body, lively carbonation. Have had this so many times and the first time I guess is around 10 years ago. But for some reason I never got around to rating it. Rating 10 years ago would have been a lot higher but now I am just better used to American IPA’s. Still a Classic:-)

massingasetta (154) - München, GERMANY - JUL 6, 2014
Das berühmte East India Pale Ale von Garret Oliver (Editor vom The Oxford Companion to Beer) von der Brooklyn Brewery! Ein hellbraunes Bier das nach Honig, Hollunder, etwas nach Zitrusfrüchten und Süsslich riecht. Schaumkrone ist fast nicht vorhanden. Einstieg ist dann nicht Suess. Dieses Bier ist für mich ein gutes Beispiel wie Bier originär funktioniert: man hat die Säure von Gerstenmalz und die Geschmacksanpassung und Bitterkeit/Würze durch Hopfen (u.a.). Dieses Bier ist recht Sauer zunächst und umso mehr der Körper zum Vorschein kommt gibt es Würze und Bitterkeit. Das ist wohl das schöne an diesem Bier, dieser Übergang. Hier spielt die Nase und der Geruch eine wichtige Rolle, der Geruch ist zum Teil komplementär zu dem Geschmack, und zugleich überrascht der Geschmack. Fazit: Jeder Bierenthusiast sollte ein Brooklyn East India Pale Ale probiert haben.

rozsoma (462) - HUNGARY - JUL 2, 2014
Egy erős helles bock és egy mezei IPA keresztezése. Nem rossz próbálkozás, de mondhatnám, hogy jó-jó, de mire való? Láttunk mi már karón varjút.

Ambro206 (92) - ITALY - JUN 29, 2014
IPA di color ambrato dalla schiuma abbondante e compatta. Al naso subito colpisce l’abbondante luppolatura, prevalentemente erbacea. In bocca sapore di caramello molto pronunciato. Piuttosto corposa. Finale ben bilanciato con l’amaro.

islay (1057) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Approximately 6 oz. from a 16 oz. can. Dry, champagne-like, hops-dominated aroma features scents of caramel and biscuit. None of the pine or citrus that one would find in a West Coast Style IPA. Pleasant but weak and simple smell. Aroma is more like that of an Amber Ale. Pours a clear, bright, orange-ish bronze with moderate effervescence and a moderate amount of uneven, cream-colored head. Produces good lacing. British hops dominate the flavor. Dry, dirt-like, champagne-like taste. Also cracker. Medium body. Lively in the palate. Good enough but forgettable palate effects. Overall, Brooklyn East India Pale Ale is pleasant and a nice change of pace compared to the West Coast-influenced IPAs that dominate the American market, but it doesn’t come packed with a whole lot of flavor or aroma. It comes across more like an ESB or an Amber Ale than what I have come to think an IPA from an American craft brewery would taste like.
